The Nixon Sentry A105 with leather strap is one of the most popular timepieces front the American watchmaker. It comes in various colors but the one with black dial and tan leather is the one I like so much and which I have chosen for this review, but it´s alright since the other color variation have pretty much the same characteristics.
Sentry Case and Dial
42mm wide not very large and looks really good. with a nice clean modern design with not being too bold too industrial. With no numerals on it with a classic and clean look like the one of the 80´s. The hour markers shaped like wedges which are not only applied like in other bolder watches, but they are raised like a deep cut in a wheel of a car which gives the watch more depth. The hour markers are all bright white which contrasts very well with dark grey of the dial. The minute markers are really nice looking blue a bit close to a lazer blue same as the second hand. It gives the watch a very cool sporty look. All these details and elements which are lightly colored really elevates the watch to the next level. The case is a very cool stainless steel shaped in a cylindrical way with the Nixon logo on the crown on the edge.
The Strap Leather
The leather on the Nixon Sentry is a genuine one, a bold tan khaki like a nice, classy car seat’s color. The edges are not really finished which gives a cool look and makes it feel authentic and seems natural. The leather gets darker over time which is a warning printed by Nixon and stick to the back case of the watch, which is not a problem because I personally like the look of leather when it gets old.
With small black and blue stitches, these two colors goes very well with dial as the dial´s background is all black and the same blue is found on the seconds sweeping hand. It has a clasp buckle in which is engraved the NIXON letters same as in the logo but without the symbol found on the crown.
The Nixon Sentry Leather A105 is 100 Meters water resistant and weighs 8.80 Ounces. This watch is equipped with a Japanese quartz with 3 hands with day and date. The Nixon Sentry is no doubt one of the fashionable timepieces in the world of watches. This watch is ideal for anyone seeking a watch that has more design and appeal than it does mechanical value. The price range of the Sentry leather is between $117 and $135.
